“Dortmund is interested, and the compensation might be put toward hiring a replacement.”
As the Guinean reaches the final year of his contract and the club risks losing him for free, there has been much speculation regarding his dissatisfaction and a possible sale this summer.
There have been persistent reports that our No. 8 will be leaving the club, but manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed on multiple occasions that he will remain at Anfield at least until the end of the current transfer window.
However, the German did confirm that we would replace the former RB Leipzig player if he were to leave the club.
Every single one of our fans will add up the pieces and realize that Jude Bellingham must be a part of this trade if Borussia Dortmund is even somewhat interested in the midfielder.
It would be ideal if we could use Keita as leverage to acquire the England international, but this seems quite improbable at this time.
The Birmingham-born midfielder is not for sale this season, so any potential move for our guy at this time would serve solely as a hopeful sweetener for likely negotiations next summer.
